Product Details


  1. Remove strip from pouch. Twist strip to loosen and separate slits prior to use (see illustration).
  2. After washing your face, thoroughly wet your nose. The strip won’t stick on a dry nose.
  3. Dry hands. Peel strip off plastic liner. Apply to nose area, smooth side down, pressing down to ensure good contact with skin.
  4. Let dry for about 10-15 minutes until stiff to the touch — like papier-mâché.
  5. Slowly and carefully peel off starting at edges, pulling toward center. Any residue left on skin is easily removed with rinsing.


  1. Use only on the nose.
  2. Avoid using on acne blemishes or swollen, sunburned, excessively dry skin, or skin prone to spider veins.
  3. Consult a physician before using on skin being treated with prescription acne medication.
  4. Avoid using on skin which is sensitive to bandages or peel-off face masks.
  5. Remove strip as directed promptly after it becomes stiff. If strip is difficult or painful to remove, wet strip thoroughly until it slides off easily. Forceful removal of the strip should be avoided and may cause skin abrasions. If this occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician.
  6. Do not use more often than once every three days.

how it works

  • Uses a blend of C-bond technology to remove the dirt and oil that causes blackheads.
  • With purifying charcoal powder, the strip acts like a sponge to draw out and absorb excess dirt and oil, reducing shine.
  • Keeps oil at bay for 24 hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dried Out and Did not Stick I usually love Biore Charcoal products (1 minute Heating Mask, Facial Scrub, and Daily Cleanser) but I am so unhappy with these Biore Strips. They didn't stick to my nose at all, or to anything for that matter. The sticky side was completely dry and began to crack when I bent the strip. I checked the box to see if they are expired, but could not locate a date. This is the last time I will buy any Biore product, as I work to hard to waste what money I earn. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! I use the regular strips and they work great. These did nothing and left an odd residue on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I got a couple of free samples of these charcoal pore strips and after using it I was surprised to see a big difference. It didn't get all the blackheads out but when I used it the other one the next day I knew I had to go gert more. I love these strips!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from would not recommend I bought these a couple days ago, I spent over five dollars on these things and I'm very unsatisfied. You get like what 6 in a pack? Now I don't have terrible blackheads etc. but I have some and I was hoping at least a FEW would be pulled out but I saw absolutely no blackheads on the strip, maybe a few hairs but other than that nothing. It was disappointing and I feel I wasted my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I used 2 strips (Which I recommend) I used the 1st strip to get most of my black heads out Then the second strip to really flex to my nose and get the hard to reach ones out. This worked wonders!!!! I have not more black heads left on my nose!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't think it work because years ago I used the regular Biore and didn't work........ however I said let me try it again and IT WORKED....... I know it says nose strips..... but I used it on my cheeks and I instantly had a glow after I rinsed my face...... I've been seeing the black mask on social media and her it was elders glue and charcoal... and they say it works but it HURTS....... SO THATS WHY I TRIED THIS PRODUCT...... I didn't want the pain...........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ITS WORKING I've tried several blackhead treatments like black mask or nose strips from other brands and nothing worked. I received one of those as an advertisement gift and I am absolutely surprised how good it worked. it pulls out many blackheads and does not leave your nose dry. A very good product!!!
Date published: 2017-04-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The regular ones are better I've used two of this strips so far and hated how it leaves a black gunk after removing it, plus they don't work as good as the regular ones. If you're looking for a strip that removes your blackheads, I recommend the original ones. These aren't as effective, they only look better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Blown Away! I'm absolutely Blown Away these strips actually work just take a look at the picture I took I'm a dude and guys usually don't give into this kind of stuff usually it's fake but this actually works and thank you so much for the scientists who created this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rude advertisement! I did recommend until... I would not appreciate any woman who openly speaks about how she can see my blackheads in such a rude manner. Have some tact and discretion. This is not a way to attract consumers. Show the results live, speak the truth, I've been recommending them for while but there is no need for insults!!! Extremely disappointed in your company at the moment. I plan on making my own charcoal nose masks in the future and will not associate with such a distastefully rude speaking company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMAZING I have been purchasing this product for a few years now but I haven't been using it religiously. Just recently though, for the past few months, I have been using it every week and it works WONDERS! It may be gross, but it is absolutely satisfying to see all the gunk that's on my face! Thank you thank you thank you Biore for making me face cleaner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you so much! I have very stubborn black heads on my nose, always have. It makes me so self conscious and I’ve tried ALOT of other products that promised results and this is the first one that followed through! I was genuinely shocked at how well this product worked for me, I was starting to think I would just have to live with nasty pores. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well but menthol is strong. They work wonderfully! Pulls out lots of oil and dirt. However the menthol feeling is VERY strong which can be a bit unpleasant. Also a bit expensive for only 5 strips but for what it pulls out I'll settle for that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I have loved this product! Everyone should honestly try it. I have been using the regular biore pore strips for years now and have always loved seeing what kind of grossness come out of my pores! But the charcoal ones are so much more fun. You can totally see the blackheads easier with the black background. Also I love how these ones have charcoal because I'm just a charcoal fanatic. I tried them on my boyfriend and it worked so well! He always wants to use them now. My skin feels so much cleaner after just one use! I have very oily skin and my nose has always been a problem area, but the charcoal strips definitely take care of that. Works best if you only use about three times a week. If you use it more than that you could over dry your skin. Make sure to thoroughly wet your nose before using to get the best results! The only downfall I have found with this product is that when the strip is wet and you touch it, there is black residue. This also happens if you get it too wet and it drips. But other than that this product is perfect! I definitely would recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't really do much for me, but really fun to use I don't really have many blackheads on my nose, but if you do, these are definitely worth buying. They are so fun to use for some reason, and looking at everything that comes off is oddly satisfying.
